    Bought another Audi S3 and this one has me stumped. 1st gear judders,all other gears are fine and spot on. For example say, your in 1st and about to set off as soon as you've reached 5-10 MPH if you hold the gear knob you can feel it juddering.

    What could it be?

    Thanks

    It could be something to do with the haldex 4wd system. My S3 2002 has the same problem in 1st gear while going around a corner. If you can get someone to watch your rear wheels as you take off in 1st gear in your street, get them to see if the rear wheels lock up (the juddering sensation). If they do lock up it will be the haldex. If the is the case, let me know and I should be able to give you all the info i have gathered.
